A new civilian prime minister has been appointed by Guinea’s junta leader.

Guinea’s military leader has appointed Mohamed Beavogui, a career civil servant, as Prime Minister to supervise the transition to civilian administration following the coup last month.

Mr. Beavogui, 68, is an agricultural finance expert. According to news reports, he is connected to Diallo Tellia, a former Guinean diplomat who served as the first secretary-general of the Organisation of African Unity.

His nomination was announced in a decree broadcast on national television on Wednesday.

Col Mamady Doumbouya, the coup leader, was sworn in as provisional president last Friday.
